See the pic I posted below. I feel like my mountain laurel is sick or dying. What can I do to help it? It happens to be our state tree too, so I'm worried very much about ramifications if there are any.
I don't know the pH. It used to thrive and I don't know what happened. Can I save it?rainbowgardener wrote:It does look like a fungal disease.
Do you know what the pH of your soil is? Mountain laurel MUST have acid soil, pH down around 5. In soil that is neutral or alkaline it will be unhealthy and very vulnerable to any disease or pest that comes along.
